The flows on the East have been dropped down to about 43 cfs this week but even with the thinner water the fishing has been pretty good. Most anglers are reporting 5 to a dozen fish per day on both streamers and nymphs. Most of the fish being caught are on nymphs but we have had some good reports on streamers as well. The browns seem to be a little more active lately with about 50/50 browns to rainbows being reported this week. There have been some nice fish in the mid 20’s being caught as well as lots of 13 to 18 inch fish. There’s a pretty good list of flies that have been working, keep your nymphs small and deep, and your streamers deep as well.
